I'd venture to say there was some decline in playing ability even earlier- his hands have a bad case of the shakes as early as 1980. ( see the videos on youtube for proof.)

I don't know what the May date might be that you're thinking of, but here in Britain, in common with many other countries, we observe two minutes silence in memory of those who served and sacrificed in time of war, both military and civilian, at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, the date and time of the Armistice that concluded the First World War (so also known as Armistice Day for that reason). Further observances take place in churches on the closest Sunday to Remembrance Day (the 14th this year).

Careful, all this talk of the World Wars is likely to bring out our favorite French poster.

Unless, of course, they are busy celebrating their country's own memorial day celebrations. If I recall last year they found some dude named Hans in a Volkswagen and gave him their housekeys.

All this makes me think of French I in HS, in which we constantly recited a little interaction between "Pierre" and his sister "Nicole", which concerned them asking their parents about eating out on the town...

You can imagine what happend to "Demandez", "toute suite", "mange", "Pierre", and poor "Nicole" by the time we freshmen were done with it...the best thing about taking French was that if you mumbled, as if while chewing, 50% of the time the instructor would give you credit for the right answer.

Ah, last thing I heard about skies, she'd run off with BD, as such sparks flew they knew there could never be another, one, for the other...something like that anyhow.

Still called Armistice Day in the UK?

Oh, and Rob, remember it's the day my husband's grandparents got married, a few years before Armistice Day :) Can I call it their anniversary *before* they got married?!

How can there be an anniversary of something that hasn't happened yet?

Is that a gentle yank on the chain I detect?

With it being 11/11 today, seemed an opening to revive that pointless controversy :)

True. Most depressing Dead-related thread, how about?
Threads about Jerry's troubles do not cheer me up.

Immediate psychic intervention required! Watch 30 minutes of the GD movie and call me in the morning.
